tainment of certain facts,) discussed by

thorizing them, severally, to enter five
thousand acres of land, at any time

act in any land office in either of the
states of Mississippi or Alabama, being

a resolution of the legislature of the

Considerable discussion took place on
this bill, in which Messrs. Eaton, Elli
ot, Otis, Lanman, Lloyd, and Walker,

whole, Mr. Elliott in the chair, the bill

JVlr. Barbour stated the reasons which
had induced the Committee on the Dis
trict of Columbia to report this bill;
those which rendered its passage pro.
per and necessary; the considerations
which obviated any objections which
were anticipated, &c. and concluded by
moving an amendment to the bill provi
ding for trying by the District Court,

preme Court Jany right of original pro
prietors which may be affected by the
| bill; which amendment was agreed to.

On the question of concurring in the

ecutive business; and then.
Adjourned to Monday.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The Speaker took the chair at the
hour of meeting, (10 o’clock,) but there
not being a quorum.
Mr. McCoy moved for a call of the
House.
Mr. Edwards, of N. C. opposed the
call, on the ground that it would pro*
dace no Valuable result, and that it was
better for the House to wait until the
members thought proper to attend.
The motion was negatived; and a quo*
rum appearing:.
Mf Cook, from the Committee on the
Public Lands,4 reported a bill to confirm
certain claims*to lots in the village of
Peoria in the stkte of Illinois; which
was twice read and committed.
Mr. Rankin, from the same commit
tee, reported a bill from the 8enate, sup*
plementary to an act for the relief of

prior t# the 1st day of July,1820, with
out amendment, which by unanimous
consent was ordered to a third reading.
Mr. Sergeant, from the Committee on
the Judiciary, to whom was referred the
message of the President of the United
States, on the subject of extra compen
sation to the Attorney General, made a
report thereon, approving of the course
that had been taken in relation to the
subject, and concluding with a resolu
tion that the committee be discharged
from the further consideration of the
same, which was ordered to be laid on
the table.
Mr. Gorham, from the committee on
the suppression of the Slave trade,
made a report thereon, which, on mo
tion of Mr. G was ordered to be laid on
the table and printed.
Mr. Poinsett stated that a bare ma
jority only of the committee had agreed
in making the said report; and he wish
ed it to be distinctly understood that he
(as a member of the said committee J
did not concur in the measure recom
mended, which he deemed to be injuri
ous to the best interests of the conn*
Mr. Poinsett, from the Library Com
mittee, to whom was referred a resolu
tion on the subject of the distribution
of certain books, published by order of
Congress, among such members of the
sixteenth Congress as had not already
received them, and, also, among sundry
literary institutions, reported adversely
to the distribution, but recommended
the following joint resolution, which
was twice read and committed:
Resolved by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of
America in Congress assembled . That
the library committee be, and they are
hereby, authorised to purchase one hun
dred and thirty eight eopies of the sixth
volume of the laws of the United
States.
Resolved, That five hundred and fifty
two dollars be appropriated for the pur
pose aforesaid.
Mr. Edwards ofN. C. moved that
hereafter the usual hour of meeting
of the house be 11 o’clock. He stated
that he had punctually attended pur
suant to the rule recently introduced
but that experience had shewn that no
benefit had been derived from it._
Calls ef the house had on two morn*
ings been made which he had opposed,
although a quorum had not appeared,
and, if all those who were absent would
vote fer the motion, he had no doubt
it would give a majority sufficiently
large to carry it*
Mr. Taylor called for the question of
consideration, and the house agreed to
consider the same—ayes 70, noes 59.
Mr. Taylor then moved to lay the
motion on the *table, which was nega*
t.iJ.S
Mr? Hardin was in favor of the mo*
tion* not only on the ground that tho
present rule was inconvenient and use*
less in its operation, but also because ic
interfered with business at the public
offices, which the interests of their con*
stituents required* Mr, H. was desi
rous to attend his duty in the house and
out of it. He also adverted to the in*
compatibility of accomplishing the bma
siness which wa* confided to the com*
mitees, with a perseverance in tho
present rule of the House.
Mr, Vance called for the Vets and
Nays, which were ordered, and the
question was taken and the votes there
on were as follows: yeas 79 nays 7JL—•
The question was decidedd in tho
negative by the casting vote of the
